I resolve to sit down for supper more: With friends, with family, with neighbors.
If that was your New Year’s resolution, then the arrival of spring is probably the best time to put it into practice! Decoist wants to help you fulfill this refreshing outlook for spring 2014. Sit down. (Don’t kick your feet up. Mother taught us better than to sully the food with the soles of our shoes!) Take a break, and enjoy the sustenance of living and eating well. Be the neighborhood hub, the one that only seems to exist in fiction.

What comes around goes around. Good conversation, that is. I’ve learned that when you find yourself invited to sit at a round table, there’s little awkwardness that ensues.

Sometimes, however, you need a table to match your character, to convey to your guests what you are about, without even having to open your mouth. Nothing does that more than a unique glass table with its symbolic transparency. There are many benefits to choosing glass. It exemplifies the illusion of more space; it offers a crisp effect and enhances the essence of what you’re serving. For those of us enslaved to foot fashion, even the shoes being worn can be spotlighted under the table. That should generate even more topics to discuss, should it not?

But maybe part of your resolution is to sit down to eat, and get to know yourself. A table for one doesn’t have to be lonely when it’s made to fit your needs. Breakfast, lunch, dinner or doing a bit of work in between- there’s nothing like a surface that supports your vast interests and taste buds. A perfect choice for small dining spaces!
Add a little contrasting beauty in your home beginning with a square table. It’s not as common as your oblong, rectangle or even circular tables, but that’s not because it’s impractical. Especially with this metal and glass top contradiction: The delicate impression of glass matched by legs of steel makes the square-shaped distinction even more pronounced.
